Norway's Minister of Transport and Communications, Magnhild Meltveit, recently opened the newly-renovated Lillehammer train station, announcing that it would be the model for all 400 existing stations in Norway. Among the key features of the new station, according to an announcment from Omnivex Corp., are the 16 LCD displays powered by Omnivex Moxie Software and providing bus and train schedules along with other local information.

A driving factor behind the installation was the need to improve accessibility for those with disabilities, which has been achieved through the use of interactive displays which support communication for the hearing and vision impaired, according to Omnivex. The project was developed and implemented by Rom Eiendom AS, one of the largest property companies in Norway, with support from local systems integrator Hatteland Solutions.

Interactive displays are placed at wheelchair-accessible heights and also include additional features to aid the hearing and vision impaired.

"Our goal has been that Lillehammer would be the most modern and contemporary public transport hub. We thank everyone who has been involved in an exciting collaboration, and we wish Lillehammer happiness with a modern coaching facility covering all the needs of future travelers when it comes to waiting rooms, information, services and accommodation," said Paul Berger, CEO of Rom Eiendom.

Geir Ove Finstad from Hatteland Solutions has been working with Rom Eiendom to identify the best technologies for future transportation hubs since 2009.

"This project has proven again that with the right technology you can remove barriers and make accessibility equal for everyone" Finstad said.
